What Can Sports Talk Radio Teach You About Job-Search? You’d Be Suprised.

A few days ago I was listening to sports talk radio and one of the big national college football analysts came on and was talking about programs that have a history of success.

He said that when those types of football teams have a down year they either come back the next year with a chip on their shoulder with something to prove or they come back the next year unsure of themselves and it turns into a disaster.

How does that relate to job-search?

One of the things that I hear over and over and over (and over 100 times more) is, “I have never had to look for a job, this is a first for me.”

So basically if you are in that situation you are like that big time college football program. You have been accustomed to winning and now you have hit a little bit of a down streak.

How are you going to react? Are you going to come back with a chip on your shoulder and work that much harder doing the right things to land and start your streak over again or you going to crumble and be a non-contender?

One more thing to share today. In case there was any doubt, there is only one team that is worth any attention at all – it’s the Tigers from Louisiana State University.

Until next time – good hunting and good luck!

  1. I’d be “suprised” if I received a resume with this spelling in the title.
    Also – please remember that Ladders is an international site and that American football is pretty much ignored outside the US – so whatever Louisiana State University have done is lost on the rest of us.
